Mental Health

The parties both agree that a psychologically healthy work environment is a desirable objective for both the employer and its employees.

 

In keeping with that objective the parties wish to work together in order to identify psycho-social hazards in the workplace that may cause or contribute to mental health conditions, and looking for ways to eliminate them or reduce these effects.  The parties are committed to raising awareness around mental health issues. Raising awareness is a key step towards ending the stigmas associated with suffering from a mental illness and creating a safe and comfortable workplace environment for everyone.

 

Understanding the above. the parties agree to work together during the life of the agreement in the hopes of engaging managers and employees on mental health issues and their effect on the workplace. This will be a standing discussion item on the Labour Management Committee agenda.
